Product Description

Amazon.com

Brightly colorful with easy adjustment controls for just the right viewing for your environment, the 19-inch Samsung SyncMaster 920NW LCD monitor is a great choice for adding more screen real estate to your computer's desktop. In addition to its widescreen resolution of 1440 x 900 pixels--offering native 720p high definition clarity--the 920NW has a blazing fast 5ms (millisecond) response time, perfect for playing immersive 3D games and watching action-packed movies without ghosting or pixelation. It connects to desktop and laptop PCs using a VGA/D-Sub port.



The 920NW provides native 720p high-definition resolution (1440 x 900) and a fast 5ms response rate.
This monitor's specs also include a 160-degree viewing angle (both horizontal and vertical), a high level of brightness with a 300 cd/m2 (candela per square meter) rating and a 700:1 contrast ratio. (The higher the contrast ratio, the greater a monitor's ability to display subtle color details and not get washed out by ambient room light.)

The 920NW's 19-inch screen (measured diagonally) is framed by a narrow bezel, ensuring that this monitor won't overpower your desk with its size. The monitor sits atop a rounded base that can tilt forward and backward for just the right view. The back includes a power connector, VGA (15-pin D-Sub) connector, and lock connector (for optional Kensington locks to secure the monitor to your desk). This monitor is Energy Star qualified, with a 42 watt power consumption rating and less than 1 watt of consumption in stand-by mode.

This monitor includes several Samsung technologies that enhance your viewing, including MagicColor, which improves and adjusts mid-level colors to shades the eye accepts as natural, and MagicBright, which creates an optimal viewing environment, based on the the image you're watching. It also includes the MagicTune monitor config application, which makes it simple and convenient to tweak your screen's settings.

MagicTune
By now, you've probably experienced the frustration of pushing buttons on the front of your monitor to access the variety of onscreen menus to adjust its settings. Samsung has now created a software application that's designed to optimize all monitor settings, and is equipped with an intuitive GUI (Graphic User Interface) which includes many more features. MagicTune employs an advanced display technology, called the DDC/CI (Display Data Channel Command Interface) protocol, to control all monitor settings.

Colors on an LCD will adjust and will appear different to the average user when the system is changed, depending on the characteristics and performance settings of the system. MagicTune provides a Color Calibration feature that helps set the LCD monitor color to a default color standard. This feature simplifies the complex gamma correction process into a few simple steps, enabling you to enjoy the same optimized high quality color standard on every system.

  • Response Time -- The amount of time it takes for a liquid crystal cell to from active (black) to inactive (white) and back against to active (black). It's measured in milliseconds (ms), and the lower the number the faster the response time--translating to a smoother picture with fewer pixilated or ghosted artifacts.

The colors are crisp.

I have also installed the latest graphics drivers and tried various driver settings - all to no avail.
Dennis Kelley
I'm sure -- or at least hope -- other Samsung models are better, but avoid this one.

I purchased this monitor in Sept. 2007 to replace a View Sonic monitor that faded on me within 14 months of purchase. I plugged this monitor into my computer, and it was ready to go. Talk about plug-and-play. I never even had to run the CD that came with it. The 19-inch widescreen makes for easy viewing on the eyes. The colors are crisp. I don't see any bleeding on the edges of the screen. I relied heavily on the opinions I read here on Amazon, and I was not disappointed. I highly recommend this item for both the quality and value.

I just upgraded to a laptop and docking station at work with this monitor from a standard 17". The color and definition is simple stunning. Will be buying one for home as well.

I bought one of these about 4 months ago. The color is fantastic and the clarity is equal to many of the more expensive monitors in this class. I am going to get another soon for a dual monitor setup. Samsung has been in the electronics business for years and this Flat Panel is no exception to their quality.

I purchased the 920NW to replace my original monitor on my Dell Optiplex 745. After attaching it, I immediate felt the image quality was poor. When I view white text on a black background, it became clear that there was a double image. I called Samsung, and they stated it was a known issue, and they would replace it by sending a new one. The second one had the same problem, and the third as well. Clearly there is an incompatibility with the graphics card, as I've seen comments by some others with the same problem. So if you buy this, better hope you get lucky.
Update - tech support has been able to make some headway, but the image is still very unclear, with colors not being sharp.

I purchased a Samsung SyncMaster 920NW 19 monitor two weeks ago, and have been disappointed in the quality of the image. Color vibrancy on the unit is good, and like others have noted here, it worked first time out of the box with no fiddling, drivers, etc.

However, I was very disappointed in the fuzzy text on the unit. It looks like the whole screen is slightly out of focus. After trying to adjust all of the built-in on-screen controls, I installed the drive that came with the monitor, but saw no improvement. And while this monitor supports a variety of resolutions, there are really only two that I have found that work adequately - the remainder of the resolution settings are completely unusable. I have also installed the latest graphics drivers and tried various driver settings - all to no avail.

It looks like I'm going to be returning this unit to the retailer and hopefully finding a better solution.

I bought this monitor because I wanted a black 19 inch widescreen and this was one of only two I could find anywhere that didn't have one of those tacky glossy black bezels. I don't know what this trend is with making every single tech product as shiny as possible but to me the glossy black look is awful and I wish manufacturers would stop beating it to death and at least offer a normal matte black option for people who feel the same. That said, this monitor has a regular matte black bezel which looks great. Performance-wise it does the job very well. The picture is clear and looks sharp from a wide range of viewing angles. I only have two gripes with this monitor. One is just a matter of personal preference and the other is an unavoidable side-effect of using higher resolutions. First, the native resolution for this machine is 1440 x 900. This makes the image sharp, but on the tiny side. It's not so tiny that it's a huge issue, but it is smaller than I would prefer. None of the other resolutions are usable unfortunately, as they all result in image stretching or skewing. So while the 1440 x 900 res works fine, it will more or less be your only option and you will have to be comfortable with the smaller image and text size. What's interesting is that the instructions that come with it suggest setting the monitor to 1152 x 864, even though this is NOT the native resolution as advertised. While this resolution ALMOST works, it is not really a fit. You end up with larger, more appropriately-sized text and icons but the text appears slightly blocky and stretched, which I couldn't get used to. In the end I settled for the native res and dealt with things being slightly smaller.Read more ›

I picked this monitor because it seemed decent and I trust Samsung as a brand. However, within the weeks that followed I've noticed several stores selling LG monitors with much better response times (2ms) and better contrast resolutions (2000:1) for about the same price. Had I known, I would've waited and gotten one of those. I've never had a problem with an LG product either.
